In retrospect, we realize the title of the course, “Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?” is inconsistent with the course content described. As a result, the title will be amended to accurately reflect this course offered now and for future offerings of this course.The course presents an overall framework of impeachment, removal, or criminal investigation of a president and rather than focusing on President Trump, reviews all 19 impeachments in U.S. history. The one-unit, weekend class is not a requirement for graduation and is not paid for by state funds.SDSU’s College of Extended Studies operates as a self-support entity and as such, does not receive any taxpayer funds. To reiterate, this course, or any other Extended Studies course is not state funded.We have received overwhelming response to this story on the KUSI News Facebook page.
